The Beatles -- ‘A Hard Days Night’

A Hard Day’s Night (2.32)

John Lennon: Double-tracked lead vocal, rhythm guitar, acoustic guitar; Paul McCartney: Backing vocal, bass guitar; George Harrison: Lead guitar; Ringo Starr: Drums, bongos; Piano: George Martin

The title for this song famously came from one of Ringo’s little sayings. “It just came out,” he said. “We went to do a job and we worked all day and then we happened to work all night. I came out still thinking it was day and said, ‘It’s been a hard da…’ looked around, saw that it was dark and added ‘…ay’s night’.”

They were still hunting around for a decent title at the time (for the film) so when they settled on that, John immediately rushed home and wrote the song to make sure that he’d get the title track instead of Paul.
